Taco Dip

1 Comment

Mr. Meat Eater and I recently went to a birthday party and since I can’t seem to go anywhere empty-handed, I made this taco dip that I found on Skinnytaste.  Now, I am always careful when using low-fat, no-fat products because many times they make up for the lack of flavor with sugar.  Most of the time, I just go with the full fat or less fat item and not the fat free.  For this recipe, I used less fat cream cheese and sour cream but used regular cheddar cheese.

I like this recipe since I am not a fan of refried beans and so many of these recipes use them.  It’s a super easy recipe and great to take anywhere.

Skinnytaste Taco Dip


8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese
8 oz reduced fat sour cream
16 oz jar mild salsa ~ if you like things spicier, use medium or hot
1 packet taco seasoning ~ I use less sodium
2 cups iceberg lettuce, shredded
2 large tomatoes, diced
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese ~ I use regular
small can sliced black olives, drained

Using an electric mixer, mix the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.

Spread this mixture on the bottom of a serving dish or platter.

Sprinkle the cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, olives over the top.

Refrigerate until serving time.

Serve with tortilla chips.

Makes at least 24 servings.

Happy Cooking!
